    Hot and dry on The Mountain. We could use some rain.

    Yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of the start of Woodstock 1969.

    TOTD: Were you at Woodstock? Okay, do you wish you had been at Woodstock?

    Alternate TOTD:What concert or concerts have you attended that you really enjoyed.

    Been sick for 2 days but it looks like rain for us today, so 1 more day cooped up!

    TOTD: No way, I was 13 at that time and my crowd hated hippies! :D We were jocks and grease monkeys!
    They wore wierd clothes and we wore jeans and white t-shirts!
    I liked some of the music tho.

    Craziest concert I've been to was Phish and the best concert was The Allman Brothers with Pure Prarie League.

    Wasn't there, never cared for smelly hippies either. A lot of good music though.

    I think that half of DU was there though, and the other half was conceived there...in the mud.

    Clear and slightly warm here in New England. Bach'ing it today as the girlfriend's in Miami (where it's raining :D) for a two day class in veneers. Waiting for Tottenham v Liverpool on FSC and getting a bit of work done. Back to Rochester tomorrow morning for one more week.

    TOTD: I was a teenager when Woodstock happened living down South in Jacksonville. I remember my parents' impression of the event which was, well let's say, "not positive." Looking back, I would have liked to have gone simply for the historical significance.

    TOTD2: Dylan/Baez at FL Field, Moody Blues at the Wolf Trap, Buffet at the Merriweather Post Pavilion

    If I could step in a time machine and go back for those three days, I would.

    With a backpack full of bottled water, granola bars, two bottles of Jim Beam, some cigars, and a camera, I'd be like an anthropologist on a field trip. I'd hang out, get drunk, smoke cigars, listen to music....kinda like I do now....and have a big time.

    And heck, while I'm back in '69 I'd stay for the World Series.

    I've been to hundreds of concerts, but I think the best one was Bowie during the Glass Spiders tour.

    Saw him in Berlin on the lawn of the Reichstag.

    On the left side was the Berlin Wall. The East German kids were congregating along the wall on the Commie side, so they could hear the concert.

    You could smell the tear gas wafting over when they "dispersed" them.

    I remember a little about Woodstock in the news as it was happening but everything else about it is based on stories, memories, and of course, concert and news footage of the event in documentaries and of course the Woodstock movie.

    Remember the Show Live at Wolf Trap?

    Been to the New Orleans Jazz Festival many times. Most memorable was a concert at the Pete Marivch Assembly Center on the LSU campus. The week-long state fair had been rained out. Willie Nelson, Paychek, the Hag, Jones and others performed for 12 hours. It was kinda like a Woodstock day with all the booze and grass brought in after the cops left.
